No Chakra?? C'mon guys! Chakra flies on my hardware and looks so purty, while OpenSUSE just limps along. I suppose I'd better give my vote to Arch then. Going off to investigate CrunchBang now as curiosity has been piqued.

I have been ardent follower of Fedora... I prefer Fedora above all.

Nice how each of the listed applicants gets his own single reply and then some not even listed.
I was lazy, there's a full year to go still. So I just voted for the best of this year - Mageia.

Thumbs up

Manjaro! Though I am new to an Arch-based distro, Manjaro makes it easy and FUN!

1st Post to vote for Ubuntu

Wow. I didn't know I had to post at least once to vote.

I'm voting again for Ubuntu. I use Kubuntu on my desktop but was not pleased with it on my netbook for any release after 10.10. I currently use Ubuntu 12.04 on it. I also use CentOS, Crunchbang, and Backtrack.
